Speaking at a forum at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy in Washington on Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Israel is suspicious of Palestinians and doesn’t care enough about their plight. “I’m not making excuses for the missed opportunities of the Israelis, or the lack of generosity, the lack of empathy that I think goes hand-in-hand with the suspicion,” Clinton said, after praising the country’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, for working with her in 2009 to offer a moratorium on building new Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.
I half-expected the Hildabeest to quote Mayor Richard J. Daley´s gentle remark to Senator Abe Ribicoff at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago [which I will not print here ´cause I wish to continue posting].
The Beast is awful, but at least the Dems are in lock-step in their hatred of Israel.
When the Palestinian people rise up against Muslims who teach their children to blow themselves up in crowded Israeli restaurants, synagogues and towns, perhaps we can talk about who is generous and who is not.
Perhaps when Israelis begin targeting innocents civilians rather than targeting the military and terrorists who have openly said they want to wipe Israel off the map, we can discuss generosity.
Perhaps when the very goal of Palestinian terrorists is to target civilians -- children and women are not matter -- we may be able to talk "generosity".
In the meanwhile, Hillary Clinton should stop listening to her anti-Israeli American puppeteers and get real.
FTA: “So, yes, there is more that the Israelis need to do to really demonstrate that they do understand the pain of an oppressed people in their minds, and they want to figure out, within the bounds of security and a Jewish democratic state, what can be accomplished,” Clinton added.
An oppressed people, really? The Palestinians have always been a pawn in the hands of Jewish hating Islamists. They need this so called "oppression" to justify their inbred hatred and gin up violence against Israel. This conflict is not about land. It is all about genocide. The Islamist will never seek peace with the Israelis because their goal is to wipe them from the face of the earth. They openly and enthusiastically say this. How do you negotiate with this mindset? Hillary and her fellow progs are no friend of Israel. They have thrown their lot in with the genocidal maniacs.
Yet, like the "won" she will get 80% of the solid Jewish Democrat vote in 2016. She is an embarrassment but we must now have a woman President now that we have checked the box for having a black. We have also now checked the box for Marxist / Communist as well with the votes in 2008 and 2012!
I guess I have had every ounce of energy squeezed out of me in the last election. I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into it, while Jews voted for Obama. Now, I will rest, and accept God´s will. I wish Israel well.
Agree #21, #22. It was and is plain as the nose on your face what this Democratic Party is all about these days. Obama is anti-Israel, Hildebeast is anti-anybody as long is it is politically feasible for her to get votes. Still the Jewish community fell hook line and sinker and voted the Democrats back into power this past election. I´m drained, it is up to God, we´ve done what we can, I think we´ve passed the tipping point.
Lack of generosity? Like the Arab nations the Palestinians originated from? I recall seeing an article in US News & World Report, in regards to the Palestinian origins. They are "refugees" from other Arab nations, kicked out/displaced, with an ulterior motive by the original hosting Arab country to be a pain in the side to Israel.
How about being objective, Hildebeast and asking the Arab nations, where the Palestinians originated from, to step up and be generous? This mentality that Isreal owes anything to the Palestinians, just because they want Israeli lands, is obsurd. Israel gave them Gaza, so where do the wants end? Well, we already know-the Palestinians want it all.
Regardless of sky high unemployment and utter devastation of theor family strucure, blacks will support the Democrats. Deliberate and brazen imperilment of Israel will not stop the Jewish vote or the cash flow. Will the threshold ever be crossed with these people?
The Israelis have been far more compassionate to a deplorable bunch of primordial savages that are trying to kill them at every turn using any means at their disposal, than most cultures would be. When you try to help them they just bite the hand that feeds them. Remember what happened when they turned the Gaza strip over to them?
The Palis took over a well-run, prosperous area, (thanks to the Israelis) and like locusts proceeded to destroy the greenhouses and the sewage system, turning the strip into? yet another unproductive islamofascist slum. Then they proceeded to use it as a base to launch rockets at Israel...oh and of course dig tunnels. As far as the Hillbag is concerned, how anyone could take that lying hag seriously is really beyond my comprehension. She is as two-faced as it gets... and both of them are ugly as sin!
If my neighbor shot rockets at my house, after I generously gave him property and food, I would probably erase him and his house. The UN just gave a terrorist group statehood status, perhaps we should declare the UN an enemy too.
Hillary clinton is one of the most despicable candidates that the dems could run in 2016, therefore, expect her to be on the ticket.
I don’t suppose Hillary is in danger of losing the money and votes of American Jews no matter how much she disses Israel since liberal Jews in America don’t much care about Israel and probably agree with her. But some American Jews invested lots of their money to help the Palestinians build greenhouses in Gaza after Israel pulled out. The idea was to go beyond giving Palestinians a fish, which will feed them for a day, and to teach them to fish for themselves so they could feed themselves for their lifetimes.
It was a foolish idea at the time, the Palestinians want to make bombs, not flowers. The greenhouses were never built because the Palestinians tore them down before they were finished.
Need I remind each of you, 69% of American Jews voted to keep this type of foreign policy for at least four more years, even after of SOS and President did every thing short of shutting the door on Israel.
It´s a funny thing about people facing certain obliteration at the hands of those who hate them. When your suspicions about a evil mob of butcherous killers turn out to be spot on, kind of kicks that "empathy" and "generosity" stuff right out the window.
The great hypocrisy of it all is that should Israel finally decide to exterminate this murderous rabble from the face of the Earth, not a few of their "Arab brothers" would quietly breath a sign of relief.
What the idiot media never reveals is the percentage of homes in the "new settlements" are in actuality built for Palestinians. It is usually a considerable amount. That doesn´t keep their left hands clean, but does does improve their lot in life.
I´ve got nothing but contempt for this woman, who is going to skate on Benghazi and who others seem to think walks on water - that means you John McCain.
I wait for the Lord´s judgement, to free us from the bondage of fixed elections and a future of nothing but more Obama/Hillary/Susan Rice/Kerry/Jeb Bush/Pelosi/Sandra Fluke/Schumer..... May the Lord bless them with what they deserve.
It´s been a rough Sunday and this just does it for me today.
I think american jews are dems because FDR sent out the word to say he was a jew and his real name was roosenfelt. He was the first and worst of the dem presidents to get us into wars and trigger the Pearl Harbor attack. He wanted a 4th and 5th term as prez and fortunately, he died. He was very ill and no business running for his 3rd and 4th terms. Hyde Park was full of info from the people that worked at the estate and they loved Eleanor, but hated him.
That is not quite the real story #24. Arafat a plain everyday criminal was ousted from in Russia with a merry band of outlaws demanding the nation. As they made their way from one nation to another calling themselves the Palestine Liberation Army and creating one massacre after another they were rejected by all Arab countries. One climax was the attempt to kill the Jordan king and take over Jordan. That resulted in the deaths of 10,000 people before they were thrown out. They he then moved on to tear apart Lebanon. Only after Arafat decided he could gain Arab support by eliminating Israel did his band become Palestinians moving into Gaza and the West bank. That gang has lost out to hamas..
The Muzzies backed Bill´s library in Little Rock. The Clinton´s sold their old clothes (including Bill´s undies) to a resale shop when they were at the White House. I doubt they have ever given anything away that didn´t reap them rewards.
Wow. And this, from a woman who has left slime and ooze everywhere around the world, like the trail of the Giant African Snail (Achatina Fulica), including that bloody puddle in Libya, and thereafter on tv with Susan Rice doing and stand-in.
I never thought I could ever say this, but Hillary just might be a worse president than Obama -- but I don´t think he will ever give her a chance to see. I think Obama is going to want to do this for life - like a dictator. He is getting too much respect and swell head from this and I don´t think he will ever want to give it up. The people who put him in office think he is great - but I think they will see that he is not but it will be too late.
This coming from a woman who has a very corrupt history since the 70s Her list of failures especially reguarding Israel and the Jews are just too numerous to mention. I´ll just say thta she and her darling hubby have been big fans of Arafathead and the PLO for a long time. The fact that Cankles is our SecState is a joke. Just a thought since PIAPS is a liberal hag. What does she know about generosity and empathy?
WASHINGTON -- An American who vanished nearly seven years ago in Iran was working for the CIA on an unapproved intelligence-gathering mission that, when it came to light inside the government, produced one of the most serious scandals in the recent history of the CIA - but all in secret, an Associated Press investigation found. The CIA paid Robert Levinson´s family $2.5 million to head off a revealing lawsuit. Three veteran analysts were forced out of the agency and seven others were disciplined. The U.S. publicly has described Levinson as a private citizen.
The powerful uncle of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been executed as a "traitor for all ages," the official news agency reported. Jang Song Thaek faced a special military tribunal Thursday and was convicted of "anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional acts" in a bid to overthrow the the communist country´s leadership, KCNA reported Friday in Pyongyang. The state news agency did not say when or how Jang was killed. North Korean media reported Monday that Jang had been purged for crimes that included faction-building, corruption, drug use and womanizing. He was considered the country´s most powerful figure after his nephew. State TV aired
Not only could you "shoot your eye out, kid," you might also go to jail for owning that BB gun in certain states. New Jersey and other jurisdictions make little or no distinction between Daisy´s classic Red Ryder BB gun immortalized in the film "A Christmas Story," and real guns. They must be registered and are subject to the same laws as any firearms. “In all honesty, kids who are charged are looking at mandatory jail time,” said New Jersey attorney William Proetta, adding that under the state’s Graves Act, a conviction could lead to prison time. “The only defense is to
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced this morning that nearly 365,000 Americans had signed up for private health insurance under Obamacare. The vast majority came from 14 states running their own insurance exchanges, while 137,000 came by way of HealthCare.gov, the much-faulted federal Web site that handles enrollment for the remaining states. But amid the rush to enroll as many people as possible by the Dec. 23 deadline, there’s a huge caveat that isn’t getting much public attention: For coverage to take effect on Jan. 1, enrollees must pay their first month’s premium on time. (The deadline varies
If you like your selfie, you can keep your selfie. Period. Unless, of course, you’re Barack Obama, in which case, you better delete it from your smartphone pronto, unless you’d like to spend the next three or four months dining on hot tongue and cold shoulder. You didn’t need a fake interpreter from an old Woody Allen movie to translate Moochelle Obama’s body language. So there they were, Barry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the hot-wife leader of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, hamming it up like it was the 25th anniversary reunion of the Choom Gang. Some Krazy Kids, horsing around, waiting for
The British security firm that failed to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack a year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was told by the State Department to avoid the media, the latest example of stonewalling over the attack. In newly uncovered emails received by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, State was notified that the firm, Blue Mountain Group, was being pressed for answers about the surprise attack. Instead of giving the group the green light to answer the media, State ordered the firm to go into hiding. “Thank you so much for informing us about
Regularly scheduled elections are a hallmark of the American political system. In 18th-century Britain, the monarch could call new elections on a whim, and our Founders saw in that arrangement a seed of tyranny. The Constitution they designed requires elections for Congress every two years, and the next such elections are less than a year away. This is good news for conservatives as they continue to oppose the Obama administration. This president has been tremendously helped by having a Democratic-controlled Senate for his first five years in office. Harry Reid’s masterful, if not entirely virtuous, use of Senate rules has
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
